Talkback: Ep 06- Family

May 13, 2020

Family comes first. On this week's episode of Talkback, host Cooper Boardman talks with three WAER alumni about the impact of family on their life and how they created one in Syracuse.


Mike Couzens is a WAER alum and play-by-play broadcaster for ESPN. He tells his proposal story—one that happened inside the Carrier Dome after a game, but only after it was altered by a Syracuse snowstorm.

Andrew Catalon walks through his Syracuse memories and giving back to young broadcasters. He explains how he got to CBS Sports through an unorthodox route.

Bill Roth of ESPN and Westwood One speaks about the toughest career choice he's ever made, as well as building a brand new broadcasting family at Virginia Tech.
